Iphone touch screen

I have read several blogs where people are talking about their iphones touch screens not properly working. I have the same problem. However, NOTHING on my screen will work. I am able to turn the phone off and on and that is ALL. I get the main screen with the lower band saying 'slide to unlock' and I cannot unlock my phone! Help! I cannot do anything with it!

Is there an application like iFuntastic that i can run on windows to install SSH on the iphone... :S

There is one thing you can try, it doesn´t work for me, but you can still try it.
You can edit the touch.plist file in /Applications/ and set the default in 0.0 (the factory setting is 3.5).
This setting does the screen more sensible to touch.
If you can´t access the Wi-Fi and SSH service you can use iFuntastic (Mac only) for file browsing and editing.

Hello, Have you tried resetting the iPhone? Hold the main round button on the front in while also holding the small button on top of the unit in. Hold these both in until you see the screen change or it shuts down completely.

Did Apple Fix Top 5 iPhone 1.0 Problems?

There’s no doubt that the iPhone has revolutionized the mobile world, reinventing the touch screen and adding cool widgets in a simple yet slick interface.
However, the iPhone 1.0 also had several annoying and persistent problems which hampered the experience and caused a lot of headaches to the average user.

I’ve looked into the FixYa database and pulled out the most common iPhone problems. Steve, I hope you’re reading it this time…

IPhone touch screen not working – Over 200 people complained that their touch screen stopped working. For some it came from nowhere; other had a better explanation (phone fell into the toilet). The iPhone definitely needs a more reliable touch screen to keep customers satisfied.

SMSing – Looks like neither sending SMS to multiple recipients nor forwarding an SMS are easy tasks. SMS is way more popular than email, especially in Europe and Asia. Apple needs to fix this feature and improve the user interface.

No YouTube for You – iPhone users love multimedia and surf the internet through their mobile phone 50 times more than the average user. That’s why it is so important to have the major websites run smoothly on the Apple gadget. Viewing videos on YouTube turned out to be an impossible mission on the 1st generation iPhone.

Toothache – Bluetooth is by no means a new technology; how come Apple couldn’t make it work?

Outlook sync issues - I’m not sure if this is the love/hate relationship between Steve and Bill, but many iPhone customers who use outlook found it extremely difficult to sync up their outlook to the iPhone. While there’s definitely a way to do it, a simpler more seamless process is in need.

These are the 5 most popular iPhone 1.0 problems on FixYa. While it seems like the SMS and Outlook problems have been resolved on the 2.0 version, we might have to wait and see if Apple will fix the other problems in the future..

The touch screen on my iphone 6

Hi Lance,

Is your touch screen not working?

Hold down the power and home button until you see the apple logo.

If that does not work please answer these questions: does the screen light up? Does the home button work, and lastly, does the finger print reader work?

I phone 4 touch screen not working

Even though the iPhone is a device that is extremely convenient to have, it still can cause frustrations. Specifically, there may be times when the touch screen does not work properly.

There are various problems the iPhone touch screen could encounter. Although there are times when the screen does not work altogether, there are other situations when certain portions of the screen work and others don't. Of course, it is possible that the entire screen works, but is simply slow. Regardless of the exact problem, there are ways to troubleshoot the iPhone to diagnose the real problem.

Big icons on my iphone 3gs home screen.plz solve this problem

You must have zoomed-in the screen accidentally. It's easy to zoom-out, just double-tap anywhere on the screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously) and everything will go back to normal.

And in case you want to zoom-in again, just do the same thing.

How do I enlarge my email screen

Place two of your fingers on the iPhone screen close together and enlarge your messages by sliding them away from each other. The farther you slide your fingers apart, the larger the letters/images will be.
You can also do this zoom-in motion while in Safari, Photo, or other apps.
To go back to normal size, just double-tap on the iPhone screen using any of your fingers.

My iphone screen goes blank during a conversation

If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken proximity sensor or a broken logic board. There is an iphone repair website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
